View Full Version : BlasTech 4E

The BlasTech 4E, a fanfictional weapon for Sine Nomen's Nar Shaddaa, and probably my project too.

Constructive comments are welcome.

By the way, anyone interested in skinning it?


Bassoon, n. A brazen instrument into which a fool blows out his brains.

looks pretty good.. but aint hte best

Coming on nicely, it looks like it could be a modern version of the blaster used by the sandtroopers in ANH. It certainly looks like it belongs in the Star Wars universe, anyway. I could probably skin it for you as well. Drop me a line when it's skinmapped, if you want.

Looking good. ;)
I like to see new SW weapons being made.

No, I'm not going to skin it, I'm going to leave it multicolored! :rolleyes:

Anyways, it's like 1,300 polys, which is rediculously high for that. I have a lot of redundant verticies that are only creating extra faces. I have yet to remove these (lack of knowhow to do it efficiently).

I'm going to add a magazine and probably make parts rounder.

if you're going with that name, I suggest you go with "BlasTech 4E Rifle" because "BlasTech 4E" sounds like a relative of Han Solo's DL-44

Um, not sure how it does, but I'll think about it.

I totally redid the model. If anyone knows of a good polygon reduction plugin for 3ds max 5, or one for 4 that works in 5, please let me know. PolyChop for 4.2 does not work in 5.

nice. one thing- the cylinder sticking out of the scope? Can you shorten it? it just looks funny...like some1 stuck a hammer on the rifle.

I've been thinking about that, too. I shall see what I can do.


This is the best one I think. The barrel looks real and not flimsy like the other one.

Flat shade of the new scope and slightly optimized meshes.

looks very nice like htat custon rifle outta hitman 2

Uh,it looks amazing but it would look better with an actual gun skin

04-29-2003, 11:33 PM
It's the Super Soaker 9000! I've ALWAYS wanted one of those!

Really? I thought it would be better with flat colors... :rolleyes:

Seriously folks, no need to post stupid stuff like that. Of course it's going to be skinned. That's just common sense.

lol meh,
Super soaker?!
Actually that would rule if you could make water squirt out!

Mhmm... Well it's starting to look really great. If you're gonna skin it (no doubt) make it similar to the E-11 (no doubt). Never mind. You probably know that already and I'm making myself sound stupid. LOL...
